I stayed at Ventana and Post Ranch Inn in April 2006. Though I preferred Post Ranch Inn overall, I really enjoyed my stay at Ventana and I had to write a review.
The staff is incredibly nice, and when we arrived, we were upgraded to a very large suite with an outdoor hottub. We overheard the staff doing the same for other couples, so I think there was extra availability that weekend (the weather had been particularly rainy and crappy). I thought that it was a very nice gesture.
The fitness facility is decent, and the grounds are very well manicured. The rooms offer flat screen tvs and fireplaces. An additional feature is the offer of free movies and popcorn for your room (you pick them up in the lobby). This definitely comes in handy with inclement weather.
The hot tub was amazing! The feeling of seclusion, the fireplace and the beautiful view made for a romantic stay.
The restaurant is also very good. I believe the menus change monthly.
